Make your open water adventures twice as nice with the Necky Manitou II Tandem Kayak with Rudder. The unique hull design of this boat allows you and a partner to comfortably enjoy a leisurely paddle down at the lake or out on the open ocean, and the boat is fitted with one large cockpit so you can bring along your kid or dog. When it's time for a little solitude, the rear seat can be adjusted to offset weight for solo paddling. With comfort in mind, Necky fitted the Manitou II with its Active Comfort System seats, which are made with three different densities of foam for cushion where you want it and support where you need it. The fully adjustable seat allows the paddler to customize the fit of the seat by adjusting the angle of the seat back (think office chair), as well as the height of the butt pad. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable place to rest your feet, and bungee storage across the deck makes for quick access to your sunscreen and rain jacket. One water-tight hatch at the stern allows for dry storage in the bulkhead. The boat comes fitted with a durable aluminum alloy rudder system that is operated with foot pedals when lowered. The system allows you to keep the boat on track while paddling ahead and is especially nice when navigating white-capped waters.

The Necky Manitou II™ tandem kayak with rudder lets the entire family enjoy the performance of a touring kayak with the comfort and stability of a recreational kayak. Tough and affordable Polylite™ linear polyethylene hull provides long-lasting wear and resists UV degradation; molded-in graphics won't peel or fade. Sharp entry lines and extended keel enhance tracking and glide. Wave-piercing, high-volume bow negotiates chop and rough water with ease. Hard-chine hull creates superb primary and secondary stability; it's great for entry-level and intermediate paddlers alike. Cockpit features 2 fully adjustable seats with a removable jump seat in the aft cockpit; the aft seat can be adjusted for a solo paddler. Generously-sized cockpits allow easy entry and exit. New for 2010, the Active Comfort System (ACS) seat offers a convenient and intuitive adjustment system. Orange pull straps provide 4 separate adjustments: backrest tilt, backrest height, lumbar support and thigh support. Lateral stabilizers lock the seat into the boat to maximize responsiveness; finger channels on the seating surface enhance airflow and drainage. ACS seat base uses a tri-laminate construction that's similar to a running shoe, providing support where you need it and softness where you want it. Adjustable foot pedals accommodate paddlers of different heights; rear cockpit has controls for deploying and using foot-pedal-controlled rudder. Rudder assists with tight maneuvering and tracking in rough conditions; rudder catch protects deck while bungee retains rudder during transport. Large stern hatch with neoprene seals and hardshell covers provides space for your day-tripping gear; stern bulkhead helps keep gear dry. Ample deck rigging securely stows gear; recessed deck fittings provide increased durability.
